There is no timetable for GSP to return to the Octagon at this time and the interim middleweight champion is happy to wait for him.

Apparently, UFC President Dana White spoke at a Q&A held at the world-renowned Wild Card boxing gym, where he answered several questions pertaining to upcoming UFC events.

"Yeah", White said. "He wanted a fight by the end of the year, so we'll see". He has remained in that role after the company was sold by the Fertitta brothers to a group of investors, led by the WME-IMG talent agency, in July 2016.

A delighted St-Pierre reflected on his momentous achievement in an Instagram post on Sunday. "I'm getting into boxing with [new UFC owner and WME-IMG head] Ari [Emanuel] and the UFC will be doing boxing, too". During the talk, the Irish fighter let the world know that he believes he still has a few good years left in the game.

Navy, it is the first three-carrier exercise in the Western Pacific since 2007. Trump met with Japan and South Korea officials early last week.

Notorious follows McGregor in his early days, as a struggling out-of-work welfare recipient and apprentice plumber, who decides to take up mixed martial arts.

Some of the footage lends new perspective to some of his biggest fights, most significantly a substantial knee injury that he dealt with in the leadup to the Chad Mendes fight, but this is all highly manicured. From the access fighters have with the UFC Performance Institute, to their production, to providing health insurance for fighters, White says boxers would benefit more being signed under them than other boxing promoters such as Arum. "Fighting a legend like that is worth the time".

Then there's the returning Georges St-Pierre, as his recent success creates a massive opportunity that the organization would love to capitalize on as well.

On that note, White revealed that the promotion will, in fact, announce the headliner for UFC 219 which will be the last pay-per-view for the organization in the 2017 calendar year. The telecast also will include Russia's Artur Beterbiev (11-0, 11 KOs), who'll meet Germany's Enrico Koelling (23-1, 6 KOs) in a 12-rounder for the vacant IBF light heavyweight title.
